The Lotus Evora S, spotted here by us at Pistonspy at the Nurburgring, will be the most powerfull version of the Evora product range.
A supercharger will be fitted to the base car’s Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre V6 engine to boost power to more than 350bhp and throw out more than 300lb ft of torque you can see additional ducting for the supercharger hidden under vent panels.
This will allow the Evora to achieve a 0-62mph time of comfortably less than 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed around 175mph.
The Evora’s engine bay has been designed to home its supercharger between the cylinder banks, so as not to obstruct rear-view mirror visibility.
External changes over the standard Evora appear minimal, apart from the addition of a rear diffuser but this is a test mule dont forget.
Lotus will take the wraps off a range-topping supercharged S variant of the Evora at the Paris motor show.
